About the Gas Station Arts Centre

Our Vision:

The Gas Station Arts Centre seeks to build a national reputation as an innovative home for multidisciplinary artistic development. We support and facilitate innovation and creativity in the arts, guided by the vision of artists from all mediums and at all stages of their career, with a special focus on being an artist’s “first stage”. The Gas Station Arts Centre continues to raise the profile of Winnipeg by being a hub of urban arts activity in Osborne Village, the city’s most densely populated neighbourhood.

We graciously acknowledge the support of:

  • Manitoba Arts Council
  • Winnipeg Arts Council
  • The Winnipeg Foundation

We acknowledge we are gathered on Treaty 1 Territory, the home and traditional lands of Anishinaabe (Ojibwe), Ininew (Cree), and Dakota peoples, and in the National Homeland of the Red River Métis. We also acknowledge that Manitoba is located on the Treaty Territories and ancestral lands of the Anishinaabeg, Anishininewuk, Dakota Oyate, Denesuline and Nehethowuk Nations.

We respect the spirit and intent of Treaties and Treaty Making and remain committed to working in partnership with First Nations, Inuit and Métis people in the spirit of truth, reconciliation and collaboration.

We recognize and honour Treaty 3 Territory Shoal Lake 40 First Nation, the source of Winnipeg’s clean drinking water. In addition, we acknowledge Treaty Territories which provide us with access to electricity we use in both our personal and professional lives.

Acknowledging this truth is important to the Gas Station Arts Centre, yet we acknowledge that it is only a small part of cultivating and protecting strong relationships with Indigenous communities. We continue to consult and work with all Indigenous people of Canada to learn, grow, and do better as a community gathering site, and as an incubator for the Arts.
